The Stages Of Thanksgiving Break

There's nothing better than some turkey and being with family.

The Stages Of Thanksgiving Break

For college students, Thanksgiving break is the break before all hell breaks loose. Before then, we are drowning in our work. After, we are preparing for finals. That is why Thanksgiving Break is one of the best weeks of the year and there is a whole process we all go through that week.

1. Finding out you get to go home

It's an automatic assumption that you're going home for Thanksgiving, but it is still really exciting.

2. Packing to go home

Everything you see is worthy of packing.

3. Jam session on your way home

The car or airplane ride home is always a party, whether it's with family, friends, or alone.

4. Seeing your family

Everyone is finally all together again after months of separation.

5. Bonding with/annoying your dog

Life without them isn't the same. That is why you never leave each other's side.

6. Preparing the meal

Preparing the Thanksgiving day meal is always full of tasks and people running around, but it's always one of the best parts.

7. Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

It's tradition. How can you not like looking at giant floats making their way through the city?

8. Turkey Bowl

Families always need some healthy competition.

9. Stuffing your face

It's the only time that it is socially acceptable to eat as much as you can.

10. Awkward family conversations at the dinner table

Family time always leads to the telling of crazy awkward family stories,and they usually lead to family drama. That's OK though because it's usually hilarious.

11. Late night family activities

It doesn't matter whether it's strolling downtown, midnight bowling, or slumber parties. There is always something to be done at night. What's the fun in just sitting there?

12. Passing out

You're always exhausted especially after all that food so it's always nice to just lay in bed.

13. Counting down the days until the next break

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
